Asian Hope has been changing lives for the past 15 years, and I am blessed to know many of the Cambodian young adults who are part of this program. These rising leaders have been given a second chance for receiving excellent education and hope through the redeeming love and almighty power of God. Asian Hope continues to improve the services offered to the original Cambodians invited to be blessed by AH as well as countless young children each year. Anyone can spend a good deal of time researching Asian Hope through their website: https://www.asianhope.org/ . I encourage you, however, to take time to visit either the headquarters in Denver, CO, or Cambodia to meet the leadership and the very lives involved in this great ministry today! I spent a month this summer volunteering at the summer school program for Asian Hope's international school, LOGOS. I thoroughly enjoyed the time meeting students and families who entrust their educational investments with Asian Hope!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

further spread executive choices among the board of directors rather than mostly resting this power in one person's role. I would also more deeply consider the direct impact of AH's decisions on the lives of the original members brought up through AH by respecting their opinions and concerns before making significant decisions.

I have been with Asian Hope for a long time. They have given me more than I ask for. I have a place to sleep, a good education and food is provided everyday. I have brothers and sisters who loves and encourage me. I have good guardians that teach me what life in the world looks like, even though i didn't like it, i'm thankful that they taught me. I used to be looked down by many people in my province but now they don't, thanks to Asian hope's help.

Asian Hope has given me an opportunity get an good education. I was able to experience love by them, and having hope in them. They have been there for me ever since I was in Asian Hope. If it was not for them, then I would not be able to have good education. They have done so much for me and my families. I just want to thank you for all the hard works that Asian Hope have done help me and the other kids as well.

I have been apart of Asian Hope for 12 years and my overall experience was good. They provided me with an education, a family structure with parents who loved me as their own and the employees of Asian Hope are like family. All my education came from Asian Hope; I went through school at Logos and now I am in America to complete my education. In my opinion, Asian Hope is a wonderful non-profit organization whose vision is to help educate children and families in Cambodia academically and as a community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not change much about Asian Hope because I know that their guidance for decisions comes from God. No matter what, God is the ultimate authority and that is the foundation that Asian Hope is built on; this is what makes it a great organization.

Asian Hope has given me the opportunity to experience love and hope. I started off as an abandoned kid, but now I have a family of over 30 people that loves and encourages me everyday. Currently, I am attending The King's College in NYC through Asian Hope's support and aid. I am thankful everyday for this opportunity.

I have been with Asian Hope for about 13 years and they really have supported me and given me the opportunity for education and a future. Right now they are trying to put me through college at the Master's College in Santa Clarita. I will be getting a degree in communication-electronic media and minoring in Bible.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

really change nothing....

I think Asian Hope is a great non- profit organization because they have raised so much money to help children in Cambodia. They are doing great work and are creating more hope for children in Cambodia. Asian Hope has helped me so much by paying for my college tuition and other expenses. They are committed to helping children in Cambodia and they have continued to surprise me with all the great work they have done.

Asian Hope has been supporting me in coming to the United States to get my college degree in Business Management Information System: Web Design. I have been going to Liberty University which is located in Lynchburg, Virginia. I will be a Junior as I start in Fall 2013. Asian Hope has played a big role in my life in bringing me the best education as well as introducing me to the Lord, Jesus Christ.

It has been a short time since first learning about Asian Hope. Already, I have been able to meet people living and serving in Cambodia and a student that is currently studying in college thanks to the supporters of the ministry. Such a large impact from such a close-feeling group.

I have been involved with raising funds for Asian Hope for about 3 years. One of the things that drew me to Asian Hope is the unique model that they have developed over the years, first with their commitment to a quality education for the orphans in their homes by creating their own school, to then committing to those same kids a positive, post-secondary education. What tremendous undertaking and gift to those students. And of course, the bigger purpose is for the these kids to make a positive impact in their country for the kingdom of God. And, as the mission of Asian Hope has evolved to education, they have created three great schools, each meeting different needs in Phenom Pen, that deliver quality education to a wide spectrum of kids, and fulfill the command to love our neighbors as ourselves. I am proud to be associated with Asian Hope and I hope to be able to influence others to get excited about their mission, as well.
